PV – Solar project brings Middlebury College closer to 100 percent renewable energy goal – Renewable Energy Magazine, at the heart of clean energy journalism

Senator Patrick Leahy, (Democrat, Vermont), joined representatives from Middlebury College, Encore Renewable Energy, Green Mountain Power (GMP), the state of Vermont, and the town of Middlebury on October 12 to break ground on a new five-megawatt solar project in Middlebury that will provide the College with about 30 percent of its total electricity usage.

The collaborative partnership will help the College reach its climate goals while expanding local, renewable energy production in Vermont. Middlebury College will buy 100 percent of the electricity generated at the site as part of its ambitious Energy2028 initiative, which calls for the College’s use of 100 percent renewable energy by 2028.
